20 Jul 2011
(MENAFN) Kingdom Holdings’ (KHC) CFO, Shadi Sanbar, said that due to growing income from the company’s investments and dividends, in the second quarter, KHC’s net profit went up 20.8 percent to USD43.6 million, reported Emirates 24/7.
Sanbar added that due to the political upheaval in the Middle East, the company’s associated firms and hotel operators’ performance was slow.
He also said that in the period, operating profit reached USD48.9 million with a little increase of 4.7 percent from last year’s same quarter.
